Liverpool eyeing Keita, but…

Keita Balde Diao is reportedly attracting interest this summer from Liverpool again, but Lazio for now are holding firm.

The youngster impressed during his first season with the senior side last term and already more than once has attracted light speculation linking him with a move away from the Aquile.

On from links that date back to last summer, Premier League side Liverpool are apparently back on the radar and highly interested in the 19-year-old Spaniard.

The Gazzetta dello Sport suggest that the Reds are interested in mounting a bid this summer for Keita, but that Lazio have so far made their position clear, that they do not intend to sell.

Reports in the UK in recent days have been to the contrary, indicating that Claudio Lotito had cleared Liverpool to negotiate with the player, if they were prepared to pay £24m, around €30m.
